Goodbye Old Poe
Goodbye Texas Jones
Oh lay me down in calico
In the kerosene and the coal

Oh, Texas is in the kitchen
With the cockroach and the flies
And Poe is in the thicket
With the thistle and the mice

And me I’m in the kindlin’
In the kerosene and the wine
The sulphur dogs are silvering
And settin’ the dawn on fire

Goodbye Old Poe
Goodbye Texas Jones
Oh lay me down in calico
In the kerosene and the coal

Poe, don't go to Indiana
Don't go to carleton road
And Texas in the bandit's hand
Don't leave me here alone

Oh lay me in the killin'
Where the dogs walk across your floor
My heart, it breaks
Vermillion girls
You'll see me nevermore

And Goodbye Old Poe
Goodbye Texas Jones
And lay me down in calico
In the kerosene and the coal

Oh lay me down in calico
In the kerosene and the coal
